57/180 Always assume a spherical turkey

While the WKRP situation was made up for TV (but it was based on a real radio station give away of turkeys, from the  back of a TRUCK) It does propose an interesting problem for us to solve. If the helicopter is dropping the turkeys at height of 2000 ft above the parking lot, would a spherical turkey be able to reach terminal velocity from this height? (remember 1m = 3.28ft)

To check our work I wrote this python-trinket code I am very much in favor of using code in physics.  Here is the lesson, enjoy!
